Waiting for minimum critic reviews


One blazing hot day, thirsty Frog takes a sip from a little puddle. It tastes so good that he drinks the next puddle and the next. Frog is so thirsty that he keeps on drinking. He empties the water hole. He empties the river. He empties the lake. He drinks up all the water everywhere. The other animals on the savannah are not amused by Frogs thirst and try to get him to give back the precious water that their lives depend on. Lion tries to scratch Frog. Chameleon tries to bribe Frog with a fly. Crocodile tells tales of frog dinners. Finally, the eels tickle Frog under his armpits, and the water comes rushing out of his mouth. Everyone is happy and peaceful again.
